When someone comes up to you, slowly, shyly
And explains their battle within their mind
Don’t you dare say
I don’t see it.
But you’re not in a hospital.
But you’re working, have a home, a spouse.
Because not everyone shows their own
The thing with invisible illnesses is that
You’d never know the person was suffering.
So next time someone trusts you enough
To explain or mention that they’re hurting or suicidal,
Or your words may just push them over that edge,
